Hungarian Rhapsody – Performed by HUNGARIAN STATE FOLK ENSEMBLE

The rhapsody as the classical European musical genre is best characterized by a state of constant anxiety, a passionate oscillation of sentiments and thoughts and of freedom of expression. Rooted in and inspired by tradition “Hungarian Rhapsody” is a unique dance rhapsody displaying the most characteristic features of the genre.

The dynamic variation of scenes illustrate the diversity of Hungarian rural culture: the acrobatic dances of men, the lyrical dances of women and the virtuosity of the couple dances. Dances are accompanied by the most beautiful tunes of Hungarian folk culture, which are also presented in the form of breath taking solos and captivating instrumental intermezzos.

The production is not only an artistic experience, a virtuoso attraction, a touching lyrical piece with deeply emotional musical richness but it is also the deepest esteem for our folk dance and folk music traditions and a performance that opens new possibilities for the modern person and that can be the conveyor of emotions and thoughts, and of the expression of the individual and community identity.
